I think the regular rooms are 140 a night.

I booked a junior suite. 205 for the first night and 150 a piece for the next 2 nights.

I applied for their Marriott Rewards Visa card. I have a 200 dollar statement credit coming my way.

People usually stay at the MCC because itís THAT close. Like HaRuMaN said, a group stayed at an AirBNB, which worked out well. The only other option is HaRuMaNís couch.

I've already reserved the couch, sorry. I've also already submitted the dates for vacation too. As long as I don't switch gigs or my other grandfather doesn't croak I should be able to make it this one LAST time.

Stay there, it's the best. You can take breaks. Go swimming. Get stung. Check the forum from the business center. Help some CEO with his powerpoint presentation while you're still in your swim suit and supposedly on vacation from your IT job. Keep glancing at the redness spreading across your arm. Go back and play some more. Good times!

Keep me posted on your arrival date and times. I have a different job now so I may need to ďwork from homeĒ that day if you need a ride.

Hopefully youíll be there by Thursday. Someone who is coming to the show is planning a surprise for that night for all us BYOACers/Phoenix Locals. Should be fun.

It would be very helpful if you could put up some type of idiot's guide to attendance that lays out the airport I should be flying to and the most convenient hotel.  Being able to give 5 uninterrupted minutes to a computer is a rare thing these days.

Friday Night is for contributors only, but BYOAC members who are holders of the Dickbutt medallion are allowed entry. Itís a very exclusive club.

We usually do a dinner Friday night and a group photo Saturday. Something is also being planned for Thursday night as well.

In other news, Iím proud to announce that although Iíve always been the unofficial Official BYOAC Ambassador for ZapCon, Iíve actually been asked to become the official Director of Programming and Vendor Relations for the show!

Are you staying at the Marriott? Iíd recommend that first of all. If so, get there by dinner time Friday. The show ends at 6 on Sunday, so any time around there. Just remember to bring your jorts or sleeveless tees.

You can never be a noob, Mike.  You're too valuable (and generous) to the community. People like Drake can harp on you till the end of days (he's got a crush on you btw), but the facts are you're a great dude, and like Yots said, we can't wait for the guys to meet you in person. Personally I'm looking forward to drinking some bourbon with you! We didn't get to do that last year.

I'm hoping at least one of you dudes joins me in helping out with the Friday load in.  When I went to Zapcon the last time the load in was my ticket to a weekend pass, but I ended up enjoying it because I got to meet all these people and learn something along the way.  One old timer had all these old pinball machines from the days when he ran his own place.  I was like some little kid hopping around him asking all these questions.  He opened a few machines up for me and explained their mechanics to me.

Of course I got to play quite a few machines and set some (very low) high scores, thus earning my Yots badge for that category.  Can you lift heavy stuff for a few hours?  Join me, get a free pass.

Yeah cool..  Yots, what about the logo from the website going on the back of the T'Shirt this year.  Is that allowed? It would look really cool, with BYOAC logo on the front.  I'm thinking just black Tees to keep it simple?

I didn't care about paying or not.  This started with someone asking for help unloading then yots said make sure you officially sign up and then she said we really need you on the other days so I felt like I was being nice saying ok.
Title: Re: ZapCon VII Roll Call - May 4-5, 2019
Post by: yotsuya on February 19, 2019, 05:24:29 pm
I recommended you do it officially because, although itís cool people want to help with unloading and setup, they need to make sure they have adequate manpower for the whole show. They donít need 30 dudes there for load-in. Itís good people want to help, but the organizers have definite needs.

The other issue is with people who volunteer to help during load-in but then spend their time playing games and not helping (fortunately, thatís never been any one of you guys, but it happens) That needs to be eliminated because itís not efficient. And then finally, itís a liability issue.

Generally, Contributor Night (Friday Night) is only open to people who brings their games, but Iíve got special permission from Toxicwas for my BYOAC peeps to also come, since most of you come from out of state. Thatís where the Dragon will come in to play this year.

So while itís cool you all want to help, and I appreciate Ondís enthusiasm for load-in, make sure you reach out to the organizers first.

That reminds me of the nightmare one time I shared a room.  It was a seminar for the lighting software I work on and this guy says "you won't even know I'm there".  It included me picking him up along the way and driving him there.  So I go to pick him up in Phoenix and he's not ready.  Waited extra 20 minutes then I had to follow him down the road so he could park his car at an apartment complex since apparently he didn't feel safe leaving his car at his own house.  He complained about it not being hot enough in the car and then I had to fight him wanting to turn the thermostat in the room up to like 85.  He whined about my snoring and I said dude I warned you and I even have earplugs you can wear but you refuse to wear them.  Now I never asked him for any money but I thought he might toss me a bit more than $50 considering how much I know I had paid for everything.  I was ok next time it's worth the extra $50 to be able to put the temperature where the heck I want it.

There's talk about hitting up Starfighters Arcade on Thursday night. Don't know how solid those plans are. 
But a group of us are arriving Thursday and leaving Monday.

Oh, and I've shared a room twice at shows.

One time, nice guy but he snored and I didn't sleep. I drove home at 7am.

Another time, I slept on the floor. 3 other guys in the room. No blanket. Backpack as pillow. From 4am to 7am.  Offered him $20, he said no worries, I went home. He spent the rest of the show telling people "pinballjim ripped me off on the room."  When I asked  him "wtf?" I got some weird "you should have insisted on paying me" response.  God I hated the Midwest.

Open carry is legal here in AZ, as is concealed carry, with no permit.  Business can bar weapons, up to them. 

No guns at post offices, schools, bars.

I did some strategic google searches.  The consensus was don't cut down a cactus if you're planning to have a good time.  Otherwise that state seems even more restrictive than Texas which I didn't think was possible.

I know he's done exactly the same thing to me literally since day one, but there is a huge disconnect between how he acts now and how he acts when he's in a better space.  I remain hopeful even though I probably shouldn't.

I'm fine with the simple logo on the front.  I don't really like how nerd shirts need to be an all-out advertisement, or feel the need to fill up every panel of fabric with some kind of graphic or slogan. It's nice to have a nerd shirt that wears like a proper graphic tee.

Well, you're "selling out" anyway, but you'd "sell more" if you at least put Mesa, AZ on it and it would add $0 to your production cost. 

Leaving year off is good if you're anticipating having leftover stock and want to hustle it at the next one.  Your regulars are going to want the year on it, though.

I made more money by the hour selling t-shirts/koozies/hats than I did until I was 35 at a desk job. NOTHING went out of that shop without St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands on it.  Didn't matter if the customer asked for it or not.   ;D

You could build your own silkscreen at home, if you didn't want to invest in a press. Silkscreens are really easy (and cheap!) to make, and you can do one off t-shirt prints if bulk isn't your goal.

You could probably sneak in, but can you stay in? There are very few people there on Friday, which makes it awesome. The locals all know each other in Phoenix, so the few outsiders are obvious. Wes stops me every year.  :lol

My best advice, be sure to hit up new Pinball machines and crowd pleaser games on Friday. Everything gets busier as time goes on. By Sunday lines are forming around a lot of the machines, which means you will either be hogging a single machine to keep playing, or jumping on anything you see open up. Also, at least in past years, a batch of pinball machines get earmarked for tournaments, meaning Friday will be the only chance to play them outside of a tournament.

So any of you guys doing the tournaments (http://www.zapcon.com/schedule.php)?  I'm happy to see the Cyberball tourney back this year, and I'll most likely compete again. There's also the Random Fighters Tournament, which is great because you get to play vastly different fighting games at random and it can be pretty hilarious. No mention of other fighting tourneys though, like last year there was an SSF2T and Third Strike tournament. But I don't think that was announced till after zapcon started.

Also, last year there was a big Galaga tourney. That was pretty epic.

I'm interested to hear about the Starfighters Arcade High Score Challenge on Sunday morning.

OK peeps, here is the official BYOAC itinerary for this upcoming weekend:

Thursday Night:

5:30ish - Dinner at the Monastery, followed by Mike Aís Arizona ZapCon Rockiní Eve Bash at StarFighters. Meet at the Convention Center at 5-ish, we can depart from there. Weíll need drivers, if you have a car.

Friday Night:
6:00 - Dinner at Pizza Mart (Pizza, beer, and bideo gamez) followed by Contributor Night at ZapCon. The evening is specifically set aside for people who were in games, but Iíve got special permission by the ZapCon organizers to let you in as my guest so you do have to be sporting the Adventure Dragon medallion to get in. If you donít have it, you will be asked to leave. Iím distributing pictures of Jim specifically so they know who to ask.  Contributor night ends at 11.

Saturday:
Group photo at 2 oíclock. Around six-ish, there may or may not be a trip to get some tacos. Look for the people wearing the ZapCon Siete shirt for more info.

Sunday:
Youíre still here? GTFO.

If anybody wants to help unload games, youíre more than welcome to come see Casa de Yotsuya. You can earn a special badge that way.

Notes for ZapCon Virgins:

1. Wear comfortable shoes. Youíll be standing a lot.
2. Get your shirt early, that way you can guarantee your size.
3. If you want a cool souvenir, check out Moroís Glass booth. He does custom etched pint glasses for the show. Tell him Yotsuya sent you. His website is http://motosglass.com. Get those early, too, as some of his designs sell out early.
4. Best times to play stuff is to get there early or stay late. Donít be a dick and add 4 credits to a pinball machine when someone is waiting.
5. The food trucks are great, but if you get hungry, there is a bar across the street on the right side of the hall. It gets busy, but the food is decent and itís a good place to unwind.
6. Be there prompt for the photo. We donít want anyone to get left out.
7. Make sure you meet TacoTownCharlie. Heís a first ballot BYOAC Hall of Famer, for sure.
8. Wear cargo shorts. Yeah, theyíre old fat dude/WNBA fan uniform at this point, but theyíre handy for swag and loot.
9. Make sure you wear your Adventure Dragon throughout the weekend so people can identify you as a BYOACer.
10. No facepunching.
11. Take and post photos in this thread. Still trying to get DaOldMan, Lew, WP34, Jennifer, and Howard out here one day and want them to see the fun.

Looking forward to tomorrow!

I'll have the Trans Am for rides.  Keep in mind, the back seat is smaller then you remember.  Also, I need suggestions for the red courtesy cooler.  In this year of our Lord 2019 it seems like Budweiser is a radical choice.

If anyone needs a ride to/from the airport I'm available.  Just reply here or by PM.  I'm off work Thursday through next Monday so I can manage any flight time.

By the way is  there a recommended route when driving up from the south?  Most times I go up near Mesa people tell me to avoid 60 but it seems like all the other north/south roads bog down near the 60 exits.  Google Maps recommends I go all the way up I-10 to the 60 exit and take it over to S Mesa Dr and head up that to the hotel.

Don't stop beleeeeeving.   Did you know Ond can sing?  Fact.
You know that every time someone sings that at karaoke, a puppy dies? But if you do it half as well as everything else, I've still gotta hear it!
Lol,  yeah it won't be that song I'll be attempting.  I remember, its really you that can sing anyways.

TacoTownCharlie picked me up from the airport and he dropped me off. I was going to have to flat out fist fight him if I wanted him to take my money. He took me out to lunch and the liquor store. Yotsuya got us contributor passes and setup the meetups including A private party at Starfighters Arcade. Jawhn made sure my cup was always full of rum. You locals really took care of us. I can't thank you enough.

To my out of town buddies. Thank you for putting up with drunk Mike for 4 days. You guys were great. I wish we could do the pool party every weekend, but Arroyo would probably die. At least Ond would have it documented on film. It was fun getting bent over by "Weekend" at Tempest. I own the damn game. You would think I would be good at it. At least my name isn't Weekend. Oh and Opt, sorry about your ass.

Anyone on the fence about attending this event, do yourself a favor and GO.

Any hesitation or apprehension I had melted within the first few minutes with TTC setting the tone, quickly followed up by the supporting cast of characters.  Everyone is a pleasure to chat with, and I can assure you thereís no ---uvulas--- here.  People were friendly, insightful, and for a noob like me HELPFUL.  No one minded getting cornered for some tech talk.  In fact they continued to offer advice, and assistance, with Malenko even offering to send me a PCB.

This is a great set of people and a fun event, go see for yourself.

Thank you, everyone, for the best Zapcon yet! I really appreciate the time we spent together talking, laughing, and just hanging out. Oh, and there were games!

I'd give you all my loudest WOOT!, but Ond is probably still recovering from the screamer he had to survive Saturday night. Instead I'll just say thanks again, especially for all that you did and gave throughout the weekend.

Only 18 hours before I get home. Maybe I have time for one more taco!

I was genuinely surprised at how easily conversation flowed with people I had only known online.  The venue was nice, Phoenix/Mesa is a remarkably easy city to navigate.  The folks from the forum went way out of their way to accommodate out of town guests and keep us entertained.  Favorite part of the show was being able to stumble around the arcade and constantly find something different to play.  Flashback to the "giant" arcades of my childhood (I'm sure they were much smaller in reality).  Highly recommend getting an Airbnb across the street like we did - it was nice to get an occasional break.  It's apparently impossible to buy too many chicken wings and steaks if your guests are BYOAC members.  Playing Shark Santa on a Vectrex on a porch while sipping my cider might qualify as the nerdiest thing I've ever done.

It will be shipped tomorrow. I genuinely feel badly about that. I brought my suitcase down to the pool to hand out shirts. You were not there. I deliberately took yours out of the suitcase and put it in my carry on bag before going down to the pool so I could get it to you later. I know it is hard to believe but in a drunken haze I forgot I stashed it for you. When I looked for your shirt later I only looked in my suitcase.

Malenko and PBJ playing a SFII Arcade 1Up together?! A once in lifetime thing for sure. Meeting you and Opt really was the driving force behind me making this year happen.  You're ok in my book, and you calling me a forum celebrity was hilarious.  It was great to see Lee, Paul, Dave, Andre and everyone else again and breaking "not Scottbot" of ever trying SoCo again was just another highlight. I need to go through my storage box and find that invasion board for Arroyo. I looked it up and apparently its worth $300  lol. The game isnt THAT good

Ginger 2.0 is going up for sale but hopefully Lee returns as a Vendor next year and sells GingerBall kits; I wont even be butthurt if he changes the name.  Funny side note, I ---fouled up beyond all recognition--- up my ankle walking so much that I missed work on Tuesday and I have a right "fat person foot" .

Yeah this year was really great. 
It was awesome to meet some of the guys I interact with here on BYOAC.  Some were surprising on how nice and chill they are IRL. I guess I fall in that same category. But it just felt natural to hang-out, joke around and talk shop on games, hardware, etc.

I was happy to finally meet Malenko, after years of conversing with him here and on other sites/social media. And we got him to drink!  (he normally doesn't)

Speaking of drinking, I can't believe MikeA and I polished off 2/3rds of a scotch bottle after finishing the rest of the beer in the fridge! (I solo'd 1/3rd of the bottle the night i arrived). It wasn't bourbon like we planned, but it was just as good.

Hearing Ond's silky singing voice after devouring a couple steaks, while drinking pbj's hooch and 2x 5ths of vodka, was a hilarious point in the trip.  :lol  He's cool dude, and totally fulfilled the picture in my head of him.

Arroyo was pretty hilarious too. Pretty much every time I saw him in the hall he'd flip me the bird.

Great to hang out with Gilrock and nexusmtz around the Robotron machines! Hope I was able to give you some tutoring tips for chasing that high-score!

Yots, TTC, Haruman, thanks again for the hospitality and another fun zapcon! I plan on doing it again next year, I might even drive over a couple cabinets next time.

I'm sitting down today and editing all the video I took at ZapCon this year into a kind of mini-highlights reel.  This will be available to BYOAC ZapCon participants only

Errm, some other highlights for this year (since I'm posting this):

-Meeting Mike A for the first time at the airport.

-Listening to pbj's story about some monkey research centre while drinking his hooch.

-Hanging out with neph at his joint.  "Why is everything so bright neph?"

-chatting up some ladies in the pool who were sitting on their large reptilian inflatable pool toy "G'day girls, díya think that's a crocodile or an alligator?"

-Post hangover dining with opt2not and TacoTownCharlie and sharing some stories.

-Playing a brand new "Premium Edition" Munsters Pinball.

-Eating Mexican street food with nexusmtz

-Sitting and talking tech with Arroyo and Gilrock

-Chasing Arroyo around ZapCon with my Steadicam while he does "ZapCon tour in 60 seconds"

-Trading crass non-pc jokes with Malenko around the pool

-Raiding the hotel pantry with jawhn

Orange is the new orange....

Thoughts on my first trip:

First and foremost a huge shout out to Yotsuya, dude made everyone feel right at home and worked tirelessly all weekend in prep for the event just so we could have a good time. 

OND, just as epic in real life as on the forum, and on top of it heís funny as hell.  We chatted all weekend and he put up with my incessant technical questions.

MikeA, might be funnier in real life than on here if, thatís possible.  Very generous guy, and always making sure everyone was having a good time.

Opt2Not, screw you Opt, Iím gonna start practicing more for next year.....thatís all I have to say about that.  Nah, the guys ---smurfing--- good at gamin, and very friendly and happy to give pointers.  Was down to party all hours as long as you didnít wake him before noon. :o

JAWN, kept the party going, dude can drink, and damn he owns a lot of games.

Viggo, I donít think weíd chatted once on the forum but the guy was humble (did you know he was behind the Zero Delay encoder?), knowledgeable, friendly, and he waited patiently for my drunk ass and drove me to breakfast.

PBJ, low key, but down for whatever.  Dudes easy to talk to and fun as hell.

Brotha Neph, damn this guy knows a lot.  Maybe too much, :o mightíve killed one or two of my plans.  I owe him for the pinball lessons that got passed down to Malenko.

Gilrock, down for the drinkin, we had a blast by the pool.

Malenko, ---smurfing--- good guy.  Slyly funny, almost over my head, and loves to stir it up.  Knows a ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- ton about gamin and gave me some priceless lessons on the pins.

Haruman, almost had me at Street Fighter 2 CE ;)

Nexusmtz, felt like he was a local, carted us around with no complaints despite being around a bunch of drunks.

And finally TTC, canít repay this guy, set the tone for the whole weekend.  Mesa is lucky to have you.

Planning on making this an annual trip, still got the smile on my face.

Hey I'm up at 6am every morning these days, a solo weekend of sleeping in was one of the reasons I didn't want to take the wife and kid! :lol

You're a good sport though, I can respect people that take losing at a game with dignity.  A lot of people can't take the L these days.  Practice up and we'll bash buttons against each other soon!

Finally back home. Last leg of my 2019 Zapcon journey was in Utah. Went hiking around a couple of mountains with an old friend. Came across a mountain goat. Found some pretty sweet hot springs, but Neph don't do community bathing. Saw tons of big country this year. I would recommend every non-local to road trip out to Zapcon and make it a vacation and not just a turn and burn weekend.

Overall 2200 miles. Saw highway elevations from about 1000' to damn near 7000' crossing the continental divide. Saw gas prices from $2.50 (Wyoming rules) clear up to $4.30 in the middle of the Arizona desert. Burned about 63 gallons of gas, or 156 greenbacks.

As I said before... Always great to see faces new and old. If I didn't get much of a chance to talk you... Apologies for being a recluse. Thanks again for another awesome Zapcon, brothers!

Though the few bills (that I didnít use human guinea pig cash on) did come in and my wife wondered how I kept that trip so cheap.  Between free rides everywhere and eating almost nothing but store bought hot dogs and chicken wings for 5 days, it was reasonably affordable.  Maybe $750 all in, and that was feeding and boozing a few of you, eating ramen with my scientist bro, and bringing home local earrings for my wife.  Most fun Iíve had in months if not years, too.

Just kidding! Moon Pies are always handed out by Alpha-Tron and theyíre done as a tribute to the late, great Bob Roberts (who isnít dead, but itís a tribute just the same).

Digestive biscuit?  Or "The graham cracker is a sweet, cinnamon-flavored cracker made with graham flour." if you will.  Not to be confused with Graham Norton who is still sweet but not covered in cinnamon nor is he made from flour.

My comment had nothing to do with you and I only said that about moon pies when I was told to shut to ---fudgesicle--- up and eat one after all I did was ask if there was a story about them.

Well you did make a general statement of a making comment "that couldn't possibly offend anyone", then  "I seriously cannot figure out why someone is getting bent over me asking for the back story."
Didn't know if that was directed at me, or at pbj.  Next time just reply directly at pbj if you're talking about him. Quoting works.  There's no need to be indirect here. 

As yotsuya stated, Alpha-Tron gives them out as a tribute to the real Bob Roberts (http://therealbobroberts.net/).  Bob Roberts is an arcade op legend. His site has not only a lot of arcade products for sale, but a wealth of knowledge on building, restoring, maintaining and fixing arcade cabinets and electronics.  If you haven't been to his site, do yourself a favour and peruse his many articles and tutorials. There's so much info there!

Bob is also notorious for adding a lagniappe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagniappe) to your orders, sometimes it's treats, or trinkets, or in my case small tools (I once got a Pocket Wire Stripper/Crimper).

But Bob's health isn't great these days, so he had to take a step back from arcade supplies and got his family to cover for him in his stead.
